@tertu I think I get you. I'm a bit eh on the actual boot-up animation itself (although apparently it is kinda randomized on every boot, something the video doesn't convey), but I love that the collaboration even happened at all.
There's some really good shit in here. Hell of a collab tbh. https://www.polygon.com/2017/12/15/16780526/super-nt-interface-ux-phil-fish
I just discovered Squarepusher made the boot-up sound for Analogue's Super NT. Phil Fish handled the boot-up animation, along with the console's UI. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXIhJKGcUJ0
My plate is already 100% full with projects. I gotta kick my butt into finishing what I've got, before I even consider filling my plate up with new projects.
But like. Y'all already know I'm sticking a big "HMM MAYBE" on this. I wanna get this comic (+ a couple other vintage Sherlock Hound comics) scanned and translated, and get it out there. Seems too good to just leave as an obscure release imo.
I need to express just how well-presented this fan-comic is. Like, the cover's insides are pink with white line-art illustrations of Sherlock Hound's cast. The first page is a full-color pencil illustration reproduced on cardstock, with blank postcards on the reverse side. One particularly lengthy comic is printed on cream-colored paper, while the rest of the book is on flat white??
Like. I don't know what was happening in Japan's doujinshi scene in 1991, but they had their print game on lock.
At the time, I half-considered scanning it and cleaning it up for translation. The only reason why I didn't was because in order to get a perfect scan, I'd have to carefully dismantle the book.
But it's too good to dismantle! I'd have to get a second copy, I couldn't dismantle my only copy of this cool release. But as if I'd ever find a second copy of a fan-comic from 1991, based on an anime from 1983.
So I was going through my merch stash tonight and uh, well. It turns out I forgot something.
Back in 2013, I bought up a bunch of Sherlock Hound merch, grabbing whatever looked cute or interesting.
Among the stuff I picked up: "Holmes of Love and Youth", a collection of parody comics from 1991. Really well-made, cool presentation. The cover is corrugated card-stock with foil emboss, it's kind of ridiculous.
two recent things about game design i enjoyed:
1) mapper Wraith777 made cool diagrams to describe abstract Doom level flow https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/100569-level-progress-diagrams-%E2%80%93-final-doom-complete/
2) The Digital Antiquarian's "Ten Great Adventure-Game Puzzles" https://www.filfre.net/2018/11/ten-great-adventure-game-puzzles/

Tonight's work soundtrack: "Game Winner" by Joey Dosik, an EP about basketball. #rec
It's a gorgeous bundle of 70's jazz and soul, written after Joey blew out his knee and had to undergo reconstructive ACL surgery. 🏀
Audio/visual artist, I dabble in a lot of things. Expect music recs and shitposts. Fussy. 💪🦊✨
